Portal not available

Postby lummi » Tue Dec 12, 2017 10:52 am

As mentioned in title, when I tried to use portal material , the render will report error like this:
[2017-12-12 12:27:30 Error: 14] Static loading of material 'portal' failed.
The other problem is every time an error occurred as Parameter 'g' not used
BTW, I use Sketchup 2017

with research of many scenes in sketchup 2017,I have to say, Luxrender+Sketchup is not a good idea. I don't want use "trash". at least you got something which is better than nothing.
Several types of materials don't work in sketchup such as portal, volume, glass 2...ect, despite the useless spotlight. when you copied a lamp , you just can't adjust the parameters of the lamp. The only way you can do is create a new one and move it to the right position from the origin. Think of you have a hundred spotlights in a house!
Maybe someone will say use mesh as light, yeah, that's a better way. But comparing blender with sketchup, I have to say they use different luxrender. Watch these similar simple scenes and you can see the difference.
